"American Tidal" conclusion. When Anton Geist, the man who caused the collapse of San Diego, refuses to reveal his collaborators, Aquaman and Lorena drag him underwater for a horrifying tour of Sub Diego and its water-breathing citizens.

    Pfeifer delivers an intelligent and thought-provoking story that explores the role of the "superhero" in the aftermath of earth-shattering tragedy. Moreover, he does so in a manner that is thematically coherent with Aquaman's narrative tradition. This is an excellent story. I highly recommend it. Read Full Review

    The cover to this issue is a cute bit of misdirection, and it's not a bad piece of art, as the sheer speed of their movement is nicely reflected by the background visuals. As for the interior art Patrick Gleason turns in a pretty effective issue as there's a wonderfully effective scene where we're taken on a visual tour of the devastation, and there's some unsettling images to be found during this exchange. The shark attack sequence is also quite effective, as the sheer violence of this scene is well conveyed. There's also a nice almost poster-worthy final page shot of Aquaman that nicely captures the character's regal nature. Read Full Review
